Ok figured I should start a new thread since the other thread was about the Van Buren Tech Demo

For those of you who dont get Bethesda Newsletter you migth not know that there is an offical Fallout 3 page now http://fallout.bethsoft.com/index.html
Granted its only two pictures (not from the game I think) and a countdown for the teaser.

Also there was a pressrelease http://www.bethsoft.com/news/pressrelease_050807.htm about Liam Neeson to star in Fallout 3

It's been all over then net.  Not exactly filling me with confidence, but I doubt much would short of gameplay shots.

Well the teaser is out...

And OMG, THAT IS FALLOUT
Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?

I am impressed by the art direction. As long as the plot and dialog are good, I'll be happy.

Seconded.

But atleast this trailer was a step forward into believing they are in the right track (getting the mood right)

Something else that worries me is the combat. A few first person RPGs (since their last two games followed this formula, I wouldn't be surprised if this one did too) have turned out pretty well, but I'm afraid it'll devolve into a click and twitch fest. At the expense of sounding like a whiny fanboy, that isn't Fallout.

Oh, I liked the trailer. I want more!

do not torment the sleep deprived artist, he may be vicious when cornered,
in case of emergency, administer caffeine to the artist,
he will become docile after that,
and less likely to stab you in the eye with a mechanical pencil

How do you know that?

And the trailer friggin' rocks! It doesn't have much content but it is a bloody Fallout allright. The classic "War, war never changes" sent the chills down my spine. I can't wait for it.

I couldn't care less if F3 is 1st, 3rd or isometric, turn or real-time based as long as the mood and atmosphere is 100% Fallout. In fact, I would probably enjoy 1st person real-time Fallout more.

We have no way of knowing until we have footage of the game or the game itself.
lol wtf

 
The teaser is much better.  I've heard it's not in-game, but rather pre-rendered using in-game assets.

Still no gameplay shots, but it does show they get fallout, or at the very least know it some.

Fallout 3 will be an awfully great game. Loved the first two episodes, altough it never reached Planescape Torment

and note, on the BoS soldier, there's some clipping on his arm there, near the elbow joint, the wires in the radio aren't smooth, and you can pick the textures out fairly well.  ;)

Nah, I don't think it's actually in-engine. There's a lot of post processing going on there. I'd say it's more likely they pre-rendered the scene but used the in-game assets.

Looks neat, but I've never really been able to get into Fallout.

a lot of modern games do a lot of post-processing in-engine, don't forget. shaders are fairly advanced..

If the trailer, with that amount of detail, was done in-game then it means that it's almost certainly going to be first or close-in-third person perspective. Which in turn probably means it'll be a real time affair.

Well the whole concept behind fallout is what worries me the most (the dialogue, that action\consequence thingy, moral dillemas etc).

Tbh I think the game would only win if it was in RT, although not an FPS for sure

If they did a real Fallout game (which I'm still harbouring a small hope for) then it won't sell well.  It's pretty clear from the market that FO isn't the type of game that sells big.  I'm hoping I'm wrong.
